I spent Fri-Thurs in Vancouver, WA with the family. My father-in-law is in pretty bad shape. Right now the condition is:
- emergency gall bladder
- systemic infection (caused by the bad gall bladder apparently)
- impaired liver function
- complete kidney failure
- heart arrhythmia
- lung impairment
So basically he’s not breathing, eating, peeing or pumping blood normally. It’s not good.
Although my company is amazing and supportive in times like this, I had to come back for at least a day to get some work done in the office. Working remotely is all fine and dandy…but I have too much going on right now and the people in the hospital waiting room were getting tired of listening to me on my conference calls. So I trekked home last night so I could be in the office today. I was along with the dog and really tired, but I did some therapeutic spinning.
“Pale Blossom” fine wool roving from Pigeon Roof studios. I hesitate to even share that name with you because I don’t want to increase competition for her goods. Her hand-dyed yarn and rovings are some of my absolute favorites and I completely stalk her store.
So I spun and I spun and I spun and relaxed after an intense emotional week. I’m headed back to the ‘Couv this weekend to spend Memorial Day at the hospital with my family as we hold vigil for my father-in-law. I wish I could bring my wheel…
